Production Description
Set in an unearthly place, Kill Move Paradise follows Isa, Daz, Grif and Tiny as they try to make sense of their new paradise while confronting the reality of their past in the world they have been ripped from. Kill Move Paradise takes the Elysium of Greek antiquity and flips the script. Inspired by recent events, Kill Move Paradise is an expressionistic buzz saw through the contemporary myth that "all lives matter”. It is a portrait of the slain, not as degenerates who deserved death but as heroes who demand that we see them for the splendid beings they are.
